My grandparents are Raffaele “Fred” Valenti, Raffaele was born 25 Jan 1863 Riace, Reggio, Calabria, Italy, and Caterina Armocida was born 26 Nov 1876 Riace, Reggio, Calabria, Italy. Both died in Gary, Indiana, USA.
Raffaele came to the United States 19th May 1899, on the Trojan Prince, He didn't come to US alone. Together with him there were other 2 cousins. One was the brother of the Francesco they were going to visit. His name was Eufemio Domenico. He was 34, married, a barber, was able to read and write and had already been in US once. The other cousin was , 22, single, country-man. Both of them were from Roccella Ionica.
I have located Antonio Valenti with the same birth year (1865) as my grandfather’s brother. I also located Antonio of the 1910 census living in New York. I would be delighted to leave if this Antonio is indeed the brother of my grandfather. I would also be delighted to know if I have other relatives coming from Italy to the states, also those born in he states.
